Swisscom, an ICT provider in Switzerland, recently introduced Vidia, a new cloud-based video communications and collaboration service, based on Vidyo’s award-winning VidyoWorks platform.  

It was only after a long evaluation process that Swisscom selected the highly scalable and flexible VidyoWorks platform and APIs.

Vidia is considered ideal for small and medium enterprises. Even larger companies and consumer customers can benefit from its various innovative features.

Officials said that Swisscom business customers, with the help of Vidia, are now able to participate in multi-party video calls.

The new service also delivers affordable, high-quality, multipoint HD video conferencing systems over smartphones, tablets and desktops.

“The integration of Vidyo has enabled us to offer our business clients the ability to place HD video conferencing calls,” said Erich Gebhardt, Head of Transversal Products, Swisscom Ltd. “In Switzerland, customers expect a high level of quality and reliability; those features, along with the scalability and flexibility that was needed to really differentiate this service, were made possible through the power of Vidyo APIs and VidyoWorks.”

The VidyoWorks platform and APIs helps developers across different markets and applications to attain a level of HD video conferencing scalability and geographical distribution affordable and with high quality.

Customers and partners, utilizing the VidyoWorks platform are allowed to achieve their visual communications goals of telco-grade scalability, exceptional quality and affordability.
